With a flutter of wings, birds alight to feast on berries in a scene of floral beauty. Exalting nature with his designs, Oscar Pastor creates a set of matching accent tables. He works in finely turned cedar wood, covering the trio with rich tooled leather, painted by hand. The set of three nests together when not in use.

His income has increased more than three times since joining Novica and he is now able to rely on the sales of his products to pay for household essentials and to support his daughters' educations.
Since the introduction of handcrafted leather by the Spaniards during the colonial period, Peruvian culture has added its own twist with cultural designs and local materials. Oscar uses the traditions of handcrafted leather in his work, keeping the technique alive for future generations to enjoy.

"Pretty, versatile and handy ..."
Nested these are a nice size for a lamp or a display piece. I keep them nested out of the way when not in use with a piece of art on the top. But when serving a snack or drinks out they come.
